10 years

I got a letter today, it was short, succinct and to the point. It brought a little smile to my face. It read:“Dear Mr.McLean,Further to your recent repayment. We would confirm that your Student Loan(s) for the account(s) detailed above have now been repaid in full.” Now I just have to figure out what I’ll do what that extra £25 a month… hmmmm…

I'm number 471

Following on nicely from my previous post about the female anatomy (or whatever I was wittering on about) I hear that Natasha (Atomic ‘the coverband’ Kitten) and Ronan (Damn why did I leave Boyzone) top the “Rear of the Year” chart for 2003. Not such a big deal except for the weird picture that Ananova have cropped into two… I think I prefer the top one actually… and I’ve just spotted that this year the award is ‘sponsored’ by Matalan. Good news for the winners then as they are obviously going to be struggling to afford decent clothes… (I’ll leave the “only chart they’ll top this year” jokes to others…)

Beauty is in the eye…

Are you a ‘leg man’? I’ve often wondered about the whole classification of male ‘type’ by female anatomy, personally I like.. well lots of things in a woman – mainly curves. When asked what my favourite part of a female’s anatomy is my usual reply is “their eyes” (still in their pretty heads of course). It’s really one of those questions that depends on the person being discussed as the ‘parts’ that make up the ‘whole’ aren’t really the main thing, it’s the package. Obviously some women have a better package than others, but it all comes down to taste. Trinny or Susannah, Dawn or Jennifer, Kylie or Danni, Lisa or Helena?

Reminder to myself

Tonight, presuming I survive the 5-a-side and after the Man U game:1. Tidy up2. Put some photo’s onto CD (you know why)3. Print draft images as a sampler for frames4. Find/write a javascript that will search named directories and display arandom image from those found there (cos you really don’t want to have toremember to update an array every time you post new pictures do you)5. Finalise design? (ha that’s a funny one!)6. Aandd reelaaaaaaxxx….

A present? For me??

Isn’t it just great when you get home and there is a little padded envelope waiting for you? And isn’t it even better when you had forgotten you had ordered something? Well simple things and all that, but I ordered a Media Hub last week and swiftly forgot all about it. Anyway, it’s hooked up now, so no more faffing about under the desk to plugin a pair of headphones, just the push of a button et voila! Such a simple idea and all for only £6.49. Don’t just sit there, go buy one!

Only in…

Well the phrase, that I’ve heard oft mentioned, but not ‘oft’ enough to become a cliche was “Only in America” (coupled with a raising motion of the eyebrows). Typically this was a response to another news story about stupid people who happen to come from America (no I’m not saying Americans are stupid, but you do have your fair share! 😉 I think the phrase, and it’s surrounding intention, needs to change to “Only in Japan” (I would say Asia but it’s too non-specific). From those boobie scarves, to the ‘naked’ skirts we can now add Golden turds.

Nooooooooo!!!!!!

Is there no end to the pain and misery that we have to endure? When will the suffering end? Why must everything bad happen to me? Is there any point in going on? etc etc ad nauseum…. S Club to split up. I just can’t believe it, my life is in tatters. This post has been brought to you with a large dose of sarcasm (well, larger than usual)

David Gallagher

Prompted, in part by Gert, I thought I’d go a little further than check my referrers but actually go and find out something about some of the more frequent ones. Now considering the top 5 are (in no particular order):1. “Kylie’s bum”2. “kicking men in the nuts”3. “Kirsty Gallacher”4. “David Gallagher”5. “something” I thought I’d pick the one I knew least about and exclude the one that I really don’t want to find – can you guess which? So without further ado I give you (and everyone who keeps appearing here looking for him): David Gallagher. An actor it seems, who I’m guessing is quite cute judging by the number of people who append “underwear pics” to their search… Other …
